Security and protection measures

The following protection measures are set to protect access to the application:

  • Attempts to connect to the application by brute force are blocked based on IP.
  • A protection mechanism is set to prevent account enumeration attempts by timing on the application login form.
  • Failed connection attempts are logged.
  • The authorized inactivity time for users before automatic logout is set to 2 hours.

Impersonate

An Administrator user can take control of another user by clicking on the “impersonate” logo.

Taking control will enable the user to navigate and perform actions in Cyberwatch via the controlled account.

Actions performed in this way will be listed in the “Activities” section with the “Impersonate” logo.

By hovering over this icon, the following message appears with the identifier of the account that has taken control: “Under control by identifier”.

Example of use cases:
  • Take control of a robot account.
  • Delete daily exports.
  • Delete a compromised API key.
  • Delete a comment on an asset containing sensitive information.
  • Support another user by seeing what they see.
  • Perform a demonstration.
  • Ensure that user rights are correct.
